Many of us never take the time to look up at the buildings around us, but if we did, we'd notice that some of them are sporting spectacular gargoyles. Bring your binoculars on this walking tour of Washington, D.C., where you'll explore the gargoyles that guard and protect the National Cathedral, as well as some of the carvings that decorate the largest church in the Washington area. Tour guide Mark was good friends with Constantine Seferlis, one of the stone carvers who created more than 100 of the monsters, saints, dogs, birds and other creatures featured on the building. One carver's notorious hot temper even led to his likeness being portrayed as a devil whose head explodes in a mushroom cloud.
Remember to bring your binoculars, so that you can see the gargoyles that lurk in the distance, and dress for the weather.
